Is Marat Safin on the sauce?

How else could one explain Roddick making it to a tiebreak in the 3rd set ...

Re: Is Marat Safin on the sauce?

what is sauce? Isn't something you add to a salad ?

Re: Is Marat Safin on the sauce?

Sauce is the performance-lessener to the juice's performance-enhancer, if you like.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Is Marat Safin on the sauce?

Sauce is booze. In my parent's time, it was common to described someone who was drunk as being "sauced."

To answer the question, I would most likely tally it to Safin's mind going on a little walkabout for a while. It tends to get restless during matches and sometimes goes sightseeing into other parts of his brain that have nothing to do with the match at hand.

I like a lot of players.
